Brad Hunt will stay in the lineup Thursday night.

On Tuesday, he helped fill in for Alex Pietrangelo, who sat due to an illness. Pietrangelo will return Thursday, but Hunt will remain in the fold. That could make Carl Gunnarsson a healthy scratch. Hunt has four points in five games this season.

Brad Hunt was a healthy scratch against the Blackhawks Saturday night.

So much for his four-game point streak. Hunt sat in the pressbox to allow Carl Gunnarsson back in the lineup after the latter recovered from a lower-body injury that sidelined him for four games. With Gunnarsson healthy, performance will dictate if and when Hunt plays again.

Brad Hunt is currently riding a four-game point streak.

Hunt came into the lineup because Carl Gunnarsson got injured, and he's certainly made the most of his opportunity. The 28-year-old has picked up one point in each of his first four games this season. It'll be interesting to see if his offensive production will save him from being demoted to the minors.
